Dalton McGuinty has only himself to blame for Jobs Crisis, says Hudak
Ontario PC Party
Ontario PC Leader Tim Hudak said today Dalton McGuinty – and not global economic uncertainty – is to blame for Ontario’s jobs crisis. Ontario lost over 75,000 full-time jobs in October, or 2,400 every day, continuing a disturbing pattern that shows our province is falling harder and faster than the rest of Canada.
Toronto - Nov. 7, 2011 - Ontario PC Leader Tim Hudak said today Dalton McGuinty - and not global economic uncertainty - is to blame for Ontario’s jobs crisis. Ontario lost over 75,000 full-time jobs in October, or 2,400 every day, continuing a disturbing pattern that shows our province is falling harder and faster than the rest of Canada.
A staggering 7-out-of-10 jobs lost across the country last month were in Ontario, and yet Dalton McGuinty still refuses to take any action. Dalton McGuinty and his cabinet ministers have put Ontario on the wrong track with their tax hikes, corporate welfare handouts and energy schemes. Instead of taking responsibility, they blame Ontario’s job crisis on global economic uncertainty. Yet the rest of Canada continues to perform well and actually created jobs last month. Ontario has lost jobs in three of the last four months.
Hudak challenged Dalton McGuinty to tell the more than 2,400 Ontario families who will lose their job today what he will do to stop Ontario from hemorrhaging jobs and to stimulate the creation of new, private sector jobs.
“It’s been a month since the election, and in that time we have seen 75,000 full-time jobs lost and zero job creation ideas from Dalton McGuinty. The Ontario PC Caucus is ready to take action to reverse Ontario’s jobs crisis. The Ontario PC Job Creation Task Force will focus on good new ideas to create the right conditions for Ontario to attract investment and new jobs,” ssid Tim Hudak, Ontario PC Leader
“Dalton McGuinty will try to tell you that increasing hydro bills will create jobs. He’ll try to tell you that taxing hundreds of businesses to pay for a single corporate handout is justified, but the 2,400 workers who will lose their jobs today know that isn’t true. We need to change Ontario’s approach to job creation and change it now,” added Hudak.
According to Statistics Canada, Ontario lost 75,400 full-time jobs in October 2011. Ontario has now suffered job losses in three of the last four months.
October also marks the 58th consecutive month that Ontario’s jobless rate has been above the national average.
7-out-of-10 jobs lost across Canada in October were lost in Ontario.
